In a historical movie about a man called Gustave Eiffel trying to build the world-famous Eiffel Tower, you can be pretty sure he'll make it. But to Eiffel's credit, finding out how he did it is an entertaining journey. The film is at its best when it reveals the incredible feats of engineering behind Paris' iron giant. Impressive for getting these ideas across in a compelling way, the movie's enthusiasm for Eiffel's engineering skills shines through.

Eiffel's not just about the tower, though. A fictional love story has been bolted onto Eiffel's life. His love interest, Bourgès, is played excellently by Mackey. But the melodrama is not strong enough to have an impact. The mystery behind Eiffel and Bourgès' past is drip fed throughout the movie to add intrigue. But despite some twists and turns, their love story is functional but unremarkable. An interesting look at a landmark most people will be familiar with, Eiffel isn't a towering success but still manages to sell the majesty of the structure.
